Waste of money
World_Traveler
, Aug 2021
I really can’t think of one good thing about this trip. It was a complete waste of money. We saw ONE bird. Apparently there were TWO, but I couldn’t see where the tour guide was pointing. We saw no other wildlife. The tour guide said, “oh, the monkeys showed up!” But he was referring to a group of hikers. We heard about different trees, but the tour guide’s descriptions were riddled with corny jokes. One straight ride up and the same route back down was hard to bear, especially on those hard seats. It did not even feel like a rainforest, which have had the pleasure of experiencing on other tropical islands. Once we debarked and went for our free drink, that lady was rude. We left 100% disappointed and do not recommend this tour.

Hello! Thank you very much for your review and feedback, we are really sorry that the tour was not of your liking. Wildlife is really unpredictable and even in the rainforest, is a matter of luck to spot it. We have no control of this since all the animals at the park run free. We have notified the park about the rude employees, as good customer service is key for us and this type of situation is unacceptable. Regards,

Not worth it

There was no pick up from the resort so we paid $100.00 dollars for transportation from and to resort. The address on the itinerary was incorrect for meeting place so our kind driver called and was told to take us straight to tram. The people at place were very nice however the tram ride was uneventful: lots of mosquitoes we were not warned about, only animal we saw and some missed it, was a hummingbird. We were offered 1 glass of juice. This trip was not worth the price and advertising was misleading and wrong.

Dear Guest, Unfortunately we don't arrange transportation from the south of the Island. The Aerial Tram tour takes you into the canopy of the trees so you're able to enjoy the sounds and views of ferns, birds and forest, we do not advertise that you will see any animals as you don't. Please send us the information that you receive that mislead you and we will be more than happy to compensate you. Sincerely,

Beautiful views

The views were nice, however you were not able to see any animals due to the noise from the zipliners. Our tour guide also did not know many of the questions that were asked such as "How much rain does the rainforest get, or How large is the rainforest". The rainforest is beautiful and the trip down is a nice view of the city.

Hello! Thank you very much for informing us about your experience, we are glad that you enjoyed the amazing rainforest views. Animals are always unpredictable, even with zipliners but every now and then they show up, it is always good to keep eyes and ears wide aware. Thanks again for sharing. Rainforest Adventures team

Must do for any nature lover

The tour starts with a tram ride through the canopy which maybe lasted about 20 mins to half hour and this was followed by a 15 min walk through the forest. If you're not used to cold weather then consider walking with something to keep you warm as it gets a little chilly higher up in the canopy. Some reviewers complained about mosquitoes, that was not my experience. It's unlikely that you will see any wildlife, we saw maybe two hummingbirds but the view of the rainforest was absolutely breathtaking! Must do for any nature lover. Our guide Kenny was very knowledgeable and contributed to making the tour an extremely enjoyable one. He had the entire group laughing from start to finish. Ask for Kenny!!!!!!!

Very disappointed with the aerial tram. A cable car straight up and down through a clearing in the rainforest. Nothing much to see except one humming bird. Not worth the money

The aerial tram gave us a nice view of the St. Lucian rainforest and the island and it was beautiful. Our guide, Alex, was absolutely phenomenal. He was very knowledgeable on the ecology and the history of the island.

Our experience with this tour was not overly positive. The aerial tram ride was acceptable but our guide Alex was very loud, often frightening the few birds that we were available to see. We would have enjoyed the serenity of the forest without so much chatter! This tour was also expensive for the degree of services offered.

We did a family cruise for the first time and wanted to do something all together with our 16 month old granddaughter too. The experience was great from the time we were picked up by the driver, who was curtious and gave us lots of information about the island. The tram ride was perfect and it was so cool and comfortable up in the trees! Our tour guide was a bubbly,cute young lady full of all kinds of interesting facts of the area and even sang to our granddaughter during the ride! Perfect day in St. Lucia!
